Hungry Pete’s burgers!

The Bacolod food hunters dedicate this article to dr. Prm. who is now  married and expecting his first child.

Dr. Prm is one of Martin’s oldest friends.  When he heard that Martin  had returned he immediately called and invited Martin out for lunch  and dinner!

We had lunch at imay’s.  We ordered cheesy scallops, fried Squid heads, bottomless iced tea and Martin’s favourite spicy squid.  The  squid heads weren’t that good.  They reminded Martin of the cheap  fried squid that street vendors sell.  The bottomless iced tea was  very good and since it was a hot day Martin kept asking for more and more refills until the server finally gave up and plunked the pitcher  of iced tea down on our table!

In the evening we went to Hungry Pete’s.  Hungry pete’s is a booth at  sorrento plaza, One of Bacolod’s favourite night spots. We went and  gave our order and sat down at the nearby tables.

Hungry Pete's!!

The staff was very friendly and allowed Martin to snap as many  pictures as he wanted.  It was then that the camera started acting  up.  Martin just couldn’t find the right setting for taking pictures in low lighting conditions!

Hungry Pete's menu

Hungry Pete's staff were very busy with our orders.

The food soon arrived and once again Martin was stunned at how big the  portions were!  (It seems that the current trend in Bacolod is that when Bacolod people dine out they want  their portions to be big!)  Martin felt full just looking at the Burger.  It was BIG and filled with lettuce, onions and tomatoes.  Dr. PRM casually took a bite of his hamburger then mentioned that Hungry Pete’s had modified their recipe and toned it down from being spicy since most people in Bacolod don’t like spicy food.

2 Burgers with fries and a dish of onion rings!

Hungry Pete’s burgers were quite impressive! The closest thing to it in Bacolod would be Bob’s Big Boy burger but that’s where the similarity stops.

Unlike Bob’s burger, Hungry Pete’s burger isn’t served to you smothered in the horrible combination of ketchup and mayonnaise.  Condiments are given to you and you can place AS much mayo and as much ketchup as you want.  Martin was extremely pleased that the mayo and ketchup were high quality and not cheap mayo and banana ketchup.  (Banana ketchup is the devil’s invention)

I was so thankful that the devilish combination of ketchup-mayo was ABSENT from this burger!

We also had onion rings which were pretty good.  The batter didn’t overpower the onions and the fried onion rings were a pleasure to taste and I didn’t mind that they served ketchup-mayo with it at all!

Onion Rings!!!

The only gripe Martin had was with the fries.  They were TOO SALTY.  They were good but extremely salty.

Sorrento Plaza was bustling on saturday night!

The owner of hungry Pete’s walked up to us and wished us a pleasant evening.  Martin laughed as he recognized the owner as being one of his HS classmates and DLSU Manila pals.  It was funny how he had entered into the restaurant business.  Back then the hungry Pete’s owner used to fry longanisa sausages using BUTTER in Dr.PrM’s dorm.  After eating he would make a hasty exit and leave the congealed fat and butter mess in the pan for Dr. PRM to wash up!

    FOR SAUSAGES TRY THE NEW SAUSAGE HOUSE DELI ON 22ND STREET, WHERE PEOPLES VILLAGE USED TO BE. THEY HAVE A HUGE RANGE OF SAUSAGES BOTH FROZEN TO TAKE OUT OR THEY HAVE A SAUSAGE BAR NEXT DOOR THAT SELLS COOKED SAUSAGES AND HOT DOGS. THE SAME SAUSAGES AS IMBISS AND BOBS AND A LOT CHEAPER. THEY ALSO SELL A LOT OF OTHER IMPORTED ITEMS LIKE SALMON AND MUSTARDS. THE OWNER IS A FOREIGNER, THE EX OWNER OF IMBISS.

    I also miss english bangers (with HP), i tried the sausage deli on 22nd street and they dont have them either, but they have a huge range of other, mainly German sausages from Santis deli (Rockwell) in Manila. And prices are a little cheaper than bobs. I have seen english bangers in Cebu and Manila only.
